Alan Summers is among the most visible poets in the haikai community. Published worldwide, his poetry has been translated into 15 languages, including part of the first Sign Language Renga. As much a teacher as he is a poet, Alan has been involved in over 100 haikai workshops. He is also the founder of With Words, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting literature through workshops and annual events. Alan’s work in both the literature community and general public is ensuring that haikai will be appreciated by future generations.
